Small but focused album of the aftermath of The Great New England Hurricane of 1938, anonymously but skillfully shot along the Connecticut River corridor in and around Springfield (MA), Windsor Locks (CT), and Longmeadow (MA). Images show downed trees, overturned cars, flooded streets, damaged buildings, and like. The storm was the first major hurricane to strike New England since 1869 and is believed to have caused over 650 deaths. A poignant collection.
